David Krainert is Chairman & CEO of KVLR Capital. He began his career in telecom, joining AT&T before it acquired BellSouth for $85.8 billion, the largest telecommunications merger in history. He then worked as a Sales Manager at AT&T’s subsidiary company, Cingular Wireless, managing its market expansion and release of Apple’s first-generation iPhone. David later joined Verizon Communications in 2007 as a Business Development Executive in the Enterprise Solutions division, working closely with business and government clients. As he strengthened his expertise in negotiations and deal structures within telecom, he was attending John Jay College of Criminal Justice. In his last year at JJC, he was offered an opportunity to work in the financial district on Wall Street; he later began studying to complete his Series 7 & 63. Approaching the completion of his undergraduate degree, as he committed his time to understand equities, financial statements, and small-cap companies, he joined the FBI post-graduation. In 2013, he left the post and shifted careers by enrolling in Brooklyn College to pursue a Master’s degree in Accounting & Business Administration. During that time he also invested in residential real estate, specifically value-add properties, using his small savings of $30,000. David's expertise working with F500 companies in various market conditions, combined with an introduction to Wall St and his disciplined personality, he was confident about entering the private equity sector as an entrepreneur.
His decision later led to the inception of The Krainert Group, a real estate private equity firm with a total AUM of $570 million and offices in New York & London since 2018. David’s commitment to assessing complex investments that permit for the best future outcome later led to the inception of KVLR Capital, a Management Services Organization (MSO) focused on healthcare-related partnerships and services. He is on the board of a Managed Care Organization in New York, and a member of MGMA. He recognized the demand for
MSO partnerships after analyzing the challenges physicians faced operating a private practice. David believes a well-operated group will fulfill the interests of the patient, care team, and provide physicians with proper back-office oversight including interoperability, RCM, and other non-clinical support.
